Why is PDC recognised among the best ballet schools in Canada?

Founded in 1978, PDC is recognized by the Government of Canada as a Registered Educational Institution, PDC provides an enriched program for the professionally oriented student as well as general training for children.

The goal of PDC is to cultivate each child to the fullest extent of their abilities. In a caring and nurturing environment, every student is challenged to reach high levels of technical proficiency. The strength of the program and its commitment to creative development is reflected in the success of the many fine students who are involved in advanced studies in many of Canada's most prestigious dance companies.


Emphasis on technique, helping each child achieve their full potential.


Royal Academy of Dance examinations ensure a high level of technical proficiency.


An integral part of their training, performance cultivates a love for the art form.

I have a huge respect for the quality of Maureen's school and a huge regard for her skills as a teacher. I'm also deeply supportive of her artistry...and glad to have the opportunity to say publicly what an effective and inspiring teacher she is.
